    Well, since I'm new to TW I might as well hit the ground running :D I've managed to scrape up a few bucks to put in my baby and I wanted a few suggestions before I spend it. I've been looking at exhausts for a while now and I want one that sounds good, nice and deep, but not too loud or ricey. I was looking at the flowmaster 40 and 50 series. Any ideas would be great. Thanks!

    Go with the super 40 if you want an agresive sound and 50 is little mellow and also to save your money just buy the muffler only and take it to a muffler shop 60 bucks to install it

    Yeah, I gots boost
    Im just going to say this... I personally think that the flowmasters sound like absolute dogshit on our trucks. Not to mention the fact that they have also been shown to decrease hp as well... your best bets are straight thru design mufflers. Aero turbine, wicked flows, and dynomax super turbo are probably your best bets...

    That's true about flowmaster because of the chambered design you actually loose horsepower but I like how it sounds but if you want some performance go with a straight through design muffler like ^^^^ mentioned

    @ only k- Ive seen your vid on youtube many times, I just wish you reved 'er up a bit higher :rolleyes: haha
    @tacooon- thats just the problem. Ive probably seen every Tacoma with every type exhaust on youtube and I can't decide. They are all starting to sound the same. :eek: Now that Ive looked into MF further, Im starting to lean towards the 5x8x...(can't decide weather the 14" or the 18")

    The best sounding exhaust for our trucks........keep it stock / quiet. When you start putting "custom" mufflers, exhaust systems on these V-6 engines, they really do sound like dog shit..........No offense, but it doesn't sound bad assed, or mean. It sounds really really BAD in a bad way.

    Stock 4 bangers and V-6's just don't sound right with flowmasters on. Flowmasters are more of a V-8 muffler, IMO.

    Don't buy Flowmasters, buy Flowtechs if you do go that route, they are the same muffler since Flowmaster didn't renew there patent in time, and they are about $40-50 cheaper.
